KAT JIM ROBYN & LEWIS – FAMILY PHOTOSHOOT
I first met Jim and Kat whilst photographing Jim’s sister Tess’ wedding in 2014…
It was an amazing outdoor wedding and since then, Jim and Tess have set up their own business, Loxley England, designing and manufacturing luxury leather goods. I collaborated with them to shoot their Lookbook (some of the images are here) and subsequently photographed Tess for a Vogue feature about future British brands. I also did a family shoot with Jim and Kat soon after Robyn was born (which was a present from Tess!)
I began at Kat and Jim’s early doors to fit in with little Lewis’ pattern and caught up on each other’s news over a coffee whilst Robyn was happily bombing around and making it very clear that she wasn’t a bit camera shy! It was lovely to see her so confident and full of character after last seeing her as a baby.
Relaxed, natural and patient yet always on the look out for the right shot is how I love to work and especially with families. It pays to be patient with little ones. We spent some time at home before walking down to the beach on what was a gorgeous, calm and sunny day.
